“Stress Worsens It All!”, Please don’t stress out, everything will be OK.
Just hang on!
These lines sound familiar, right! Don’t they? Yes! For I know every chronic illness patient hears these lines endless number of time, everyday almost.
Someone might feel, Hell, I am in pain & nothing is working right & you say don’t stress out!
I know it sounds way more irritating than one can imagine, it’s like expecting a dog not to bark or a chameleon not to change color in accordance with the object it’s on!
Well, I am a chronic illness patient with basket full of Autoimmune disorders & I stress out on the smallest possible thing too.
Nevertheless, I would say that myself that “PEASE, DON’T STRESS OUT!”, I am trying to remove all stresses off my life too. Yes! Because I realized it with my own experience that Stress Worsens It All!
The pain, the symptoms, the reactions, everything!
Autoimmune Disorders & effects of stress!
Almost all autoimmune diseases are linked to stress in one way or the other & drilily you are stressed out automatically when you suffer from autoimmune diseases.
I have some diseases that are affected by stress :
Stress and autoimmune connection!
- Lupus: In lupus patients, not only stress causes fatigue as well as it leads to lack of well-being.
- It can cause reactivation of disease. Hence, stress can lead to lupus flare ups.
- #We must remember psychological stress as well as illness travel in the same brain pathways, this can result in an inevitable cycle in all the Autoimmune Disorders.
- Gastroparesis: In patients with gastroparesis, stress can cause not only vomiting and nausea.
- But it can also cause further delayed stomach emptying. After all gut is your second brain.
- Anatomy Ecosystem Imbalance: Stress affects all, the endocrine system, immune system, pituitary glands & hormones, the Vagus nerve!
